Super Bowl Memories

Well, the game is over. The Saints won. Here I am, a week later, finally sobering up. Ok, maybe I didn't celebrate quite that much. Super Bowl Sunday was a long, thrilling, alcohol and adrenaline fueled day for my friends and I, though.

I thought that while the game was still fresh in everyone's mind, I'd take the time to post my observations of the game.

First of all, it's pretty exciting that everyone across the country knows the term "Who Dat?' now. Even Dave Barry mentioned it in his most recent column. He opines that us Saints fans use it as some sort of radar/sonar to locate each other. I have to admit that it's MUCH easier to find other Saints fans in a crowd by yelling "Who Dat?" and listening to see who yells it back.

I'm a little disappointed, though, that my more grammatically correct "Who is that who proclaims that they are going to defeat those Saints" didn't catch on this season.

It's Not A Super Bowl Ring, But It's A Start

I'm a Peyton Manning fan. Not only is he from right here in Louisiana, but he's a class act. I was rooting for the Saints last Sunday, but I wouldn't have been devastated if the Colts had won. That's why I was satisfied to hear that Peyton and his brother defeated Double Trump in the Double Stuff Racing League championship. He's a shoe in to be named MVP of the league. His only competition is goldbrickin' bastard Eli.

Most Inadvertently Funny Super Bowl Moment Captured On Film

Juvenille? You bet! Still, I dare you to keep looking at the picture above and not laugh. In fact, this may be the most inadvertently funny professional sports moment since the days of Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Johnny Dickshot.

The Great Stone Face

You've got to give Colts head coach Jim Caldwell. He led his team to the Super Bowl after only one season. He's one of only a few first year coaches to accomplish such a feat. Not only that, he seems like a great guy who does a lot for the community.

Watching the game last week, though, I couldn't help but notice that Coach Caldwell's expression didn't change ever seem to change during the game. Saints coach Sean Payton is always animated on the sidelines. Coach Payton pumped his fists so many times during the game, I thought his arm would fall off. Caldwell, on the other hand, kept up the stone face routine. Check out a few pictures from the game to see for yourself.

Here's Jim Caldwell just after Peyton Manning threw a touchdown pass a 18 yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon in the first quarter.

Here's Jim Caldwell after the onside kick that the Saints recovered at the start of the second half.

Here he is after the Saints take a 16-10 lead near the end of the third quarter.

Here he is after Peyton Manning threw an interception to Saints defender Tracy Porter that was returned for a touchdown.

And, last but not least, here's Jim Caldwell after hearing that his wife was sleeping with his best friend.

No Caddy For The MVP

For a number of years, GM has awarded a new car to the Super Bowl MVP. As you may have heard, though, GM has fallen on tough times. For that and other reasons, this year's MVP, Drew Brees, is not going to get a new Cadillac. Even though Drew won't be getting one for free, Cadillac's PR director joked that he hoped Drew Brees would " a Cadillac is he doesn't already own one." I think Drew should do it. From the looks of the video below, it looks like it may be time for Mr. Brees to trade in his current ride.

It was a great game, and a great season. Especially if you're a Saints fan. Now football is over for the next 6 months. That means I have to figure out what to do with my Sunday afternoons until next August.

Twitter Thursday...On A Friday.

So, there was no Twitter Thursday last week. Last Thursday, I didn't have an internet connection. Actually,I didn't have one Wednesday morning and was without it until sometime during Sunday of last week. There wasn't a whole lot of tweets from me last week, as a result. So, here's a super mega Twitter Thursday that incorporates two weeks worth of tweets.

John Edwards....You ARE the father! Haha! I love it. Nothing but good news for the Democrats this week.

Man Vs. Nature: The Road To Victory!

Seriously, is there any question that the apocalypse is around the corner? Not only are the Saints going to the Super Bowl….

Have I mentioned that yet? The Saints are going to the Super Bowl!

There’s a much more disturbing sign that the world will soon may be turning into a giant spinning ball of lava. First is the story that giant squid are invading California. That’s right! Giant squid are invading California. Most of these squid weigh between 20 and 40 lbs, and squirt ink at people who piss them off. I’m not kidding. According to the AP story I read, these squid have been shooting ink when they feel threatened.

I feel bad for the people of California, because they’re not going to repel this invasion. Think about it: Their governor’s a German guy. Think about what happened the last time a bunch of German guys tried to repel a sea-born invasion.

"Well, Hans, looks like our wiener schnitzels are in a ringer now."

Yeah…California’s screwed.

I think anyone with half a brain realizes that these squid are soulless, Godless, communist killing machines who are invading our soil for the very purpose of corrupting our hearts and minds! These squid are coming after our homes, our jobs, our children, and our way of life!

God forbid they catch you in a sushi restaurant, or eating calamari once they hit the mainland. They’ll send you off to one of their undersea prison camps.

It may be too late for California, but it’s not too late for you, and your hometown! Take up arms…or fishing rods, and fight these eight-armed bastards.

America fighting World War III against communist squid is just the tip of the iceberg. You see, there’s even more evidence that points to an upcoming apocalyptic animal uprising.

Snakes are learning how to smoke cigarettes.

"If I don't get my nicotine fix, I get downright venomous!" (Rimshot)

Meet Po the pit viper. He’s a three year old snake that lives with his owner Sho Lau in Taipei. According to Lau, Po smokes a cigarette in the morning, and another one in the evening.

In the Terminator movies, they talked about robots and computers becoming sentient and killing humans. They got it all wrong. It’s not the machines that are going to rise up against us. It’s the animals! Some, namely me, would say that it’s already started!

Why do you think snakes are learning to smoke cigarettes?

They’re trying to kill humans with second hand smoke. Don’t be fooled! Snakes subscribe to all the latest medical journals. They KNOW what second hand smoke does to human lungs. This is all part of their evil two-pronged assault on humanity: The poisonous snakes ambush us and bite us. The non-poisonous snakes hang around in our backyards smoking until we develop lung cancer.

Then, they invade our houses and take over.

These truly are are times that try men's souls.
